Android Splash Screens are Evil Gotta agree with Cyril Mottier here, the added APK bloat size for splash screens, (along with the delay'd application launch experience) creates a bad experience for users.
For a seriously bloated app startup experience try Wordament or Snap Attack. With two(!) splash screens, 2-3 seconds to connect to their servers, another 2-3 seconds to login (seriously?), it's close to 10 seconds before you can start a game.
